Admission requirements and credit 2.1 Admission requirements See appendix. 2.2 Credit Roskilde University may in individual cases or in accordance with general rules laid down by the University approve that completed study programme elements, cf. the Education Order, may substitute for elements of another programme at the same level, in accordance with the Education Order. Roskilde University may also approve that completed study programme elements, taken at another Danish or foreign institution of higher education on the same level, may substitute for study programme elements, in accordance with the Education Order. Applicants are required to apply for credit for any previously passed study programme elements at Master s level, cf. the Master s Programme Admission Order. 4

6 2.3 Advance credit Students who, as part of a study programme, wish to take elements of the programme at another university or institution of higher education in Denmark or abroad may apply to Roskilde University for advance credit for the planned programme elements. Approval for advance credit can only be granted if the student, in connection with the application, undertakes to provide the necessary documentation, once the advance-credited programme elements have been taken, of whether or not the elements have been passed. The student must also consent to Roskilde University obtaining the necessary information from the host institution if the student cannot obtain the documentation. Once documentation is available showing that the advance-credited programme elements have been passed, Roskilde University will administratively approve the transfer of credit for these to the study programme at the University. In cases where the advance-credited programme elements are for example not offered by the host institution, Roskilde University may at the request of the student undertake alterations in the approval of advance credit. 3. Programme elements 3.1 Courses These study elements provide the student with theoretical and methodological knowledge as well as skills in the academic field of the programme. The student must be given academic preparation to focus on issues relevant to project work and the thesis. Courses may take the form of lectures, classes, case work, workshops, etc. 3.2 Projects Project work is exemplary, problem-oriented and participant-managed, and is intended to develop and document the student s skills in applying scientific theories and methods to work within a defined academic area. Project work requires the independent formulation of a freely-chosen issue within the framework of the curriculum. The project work takes place in groups of 2-6 students. The topic of the project work is selected by the students from among the topics and themes determined by the Study Board. In special cases, the Head of Studies may grant permission for a student s project to be written or examined individually. 3.3 Internship A student may apply to the Study Board for pre-approval to take a specially-designed, academically relevant, project-oriented internship which substitutes for individual, specified elements of the ordinary study programme. The project-oriented internship, which includes, inter alia, the compilation of an internship project report, corresponds to 15. Once the application for pre-approval has been granted, the Head of Studies will assign a supervisor to the student. In its processing of the application, the Study Board must ensure that the student, through the project-oriented internship, achieves academic competencies which in scope and level correspond to the competencies that can be achieved through the ordinary study programme. 3.4 Thesis The combination Master s programme includes a major independent study which is documented through the compilation of a thesis. In the thesis, the student must document knowledge and skills in applying scientific theories and methods to work on a defined, academic and relevant issue. The student must demonstrate skills in analysing, categorising, discussing, reasoning, assessing and reflecting on a scientific basis, and must be able to select and critically evaluate the sources, literature, theory and methods used in the thesis. Through the thesis, the student must demonstrate the ability to communicate an academic study to peers and demonstrate the competency to initiate, manage and complete a long-term process of academic study and writing. 5

25 5.4 Fourth semester thesis The thesis corresponds to 30. The thesis is written on the basis of Computer Science, and may be interdisciplinary. The thesis is written in the teaching and examination language of Computer Science. The Head of Studies must approve the thesis statement, and will at the same time set a final date for the submission for the thesis, pursuant to the regulations for examination registration. The thesis must be accompanied by a summary in a foreign language. If the thesis is written in a foreign language other than Norwegian or Swedish, the summary may be written in Danish. The thesis work, which usually takes place in groups, concludes the study programme; the Study Board may however grant an exemption from this requirement where this is justified by exceptional circumstances, or if one or more previous study programme elements have not been passed. Research-based knowledge in selected academic areas, and an understanding of and reflection on the position of the student s own thesis study in the academic field. Identification of scientific issues and a critical approach to scientific knowledge. of the academic genre and the academic target group, and an understanding of the overall communication situation of which the thesis is a part. in mastering and applying scientific theories and methods in work on a defined, academic and relevant issue. in analysing, categorising, discussing, reasoning, reflecting and evaluating on a scientific basis. The ability to critically evaluate and select sources, literature, theory and methods. The ability to discuss and participate in academic debate with representatives of the academic discourse community. The ability to write in accordance with academic norms and for an academic target group. The competency to independently initiate, manage and complete a long-term process of academic study and writing. The competency to take responsibility for one s own academic and linguistic development and specialisation. Size: Between 20 and 100 standard pages of 2,400 characters each (incl. spaces), excluding the front page, table of contents, bibliography and any appendices. Oral examination In an oral examination of the thesis, the duration of the examination, including assessment, is set as follows: 1 examinee = 40 minutes 2 examinees = 70 minutes 3 examinees = 85 minutes 4 examinees = 100 minutes 5 examinees = 115 minutes 6 examinees = 130 minutes In the assessment of the thesis, the following forms of assessment may be used: 1. on the basis of the thesis alone, or 2. Combined assessment of the thesis and an oral examination. The student selects the examination form. The rector may however approve that regulations are laid down in the curriculum stipulating the use of a fixed form of assessment. The form of assessment may be made dependent on whether the thesis is written by a group or by an individual. If the thesis is written by a group, it must be individualised on submission if one or more of the students in the group wish to have the thesis assessed on the basis of the thesis alone (form 1). The individualisation must be genuine and show which students have been mainly responsible for the individual sections. If the thesis is not individualised, an oral thesis examination 24
